Recording KING!!!!!
The Ghost, 05.07.2013
The Recording King RG-32 is a great starting point for anyone looking to try a lap steel for very little outlay. It's almost as cheap as building a home-made "Diddly bow", only this is a very serious product. Recording King is a company steeped in Down-South 1930s American Musical history now outsourcing some products to the Far East but not to it's detriment. The Guitar is a beautiful Sunburst finish with a white Pearloid neck and the Body is Mahogany which helps the sound of the well voiced P90 Bridge pickup. The String through body is another great addition for tuning stability and the guitar actually arrived fully in tune which was unbelievable. The sound is very clear and you could lose hours just toying with this through an amp. This is a great instrument for someone looking to play deep somber slides on a porch in a rocking chair, Hawaiian/country style backing or crazy Ethereal, otherworldly sounds through effects units with their recording projects. The guitar is very well finished, great quality and extremely affordable. Again China comes to the fore with a brilliant product costing very little.

RG-32-lap steel
Eric2328, 04.09.2016
There are two versions of this guitar, and when i made my purchase , both were 124.eur. Thomann really take care when sending you stuff, and as usual, the guitar was delivered promptly, and very well packaged, it gives you confidence to buy again. This particular guitar i got ,didnt have any slots in the nut or saddle, and the strings were very loose; - so no set up at all. Icould have returned it, but decided to do my own setup. Now the guitar sounds and plays great, the tone is fantastic - full and rich, the pick-up is a good P90. The vol and tone pots are set-up so you can easily do swells and wah type sounds. The tuners do their job, the rest of the hardware is fine, and a good finish all round. Iv used it pub gigs, and its sounds great.Got the bag as well - good fit and very handy. In all good value.

Surprisingly good, especially for the price

This is my second lap steel and I love everything about it. Sound is excellent and it is very comfortable to play. Looks great too which is not common with lap steels. Basic set of config options (2) regarding tone and volume but that's all I need. Great instrument.

It is what it is...
EchoNET, 26.06.2020
...in that this is a budget lap steel. Good for a beginner, decent sound, decent quality, but you will notice that the fit and finish of the instrument is a little bit shabby in places. Other than that, you get what you pay for and I don't mean that in a bad way!
